A few weeks ago I blogged about interactive novels in my post ‘Storyteching’ and got a bit of a mixed bag of responses, which is always nice to see.
I mentioned an article in the post, that reviewed a new interactive adaptation of John Buchan’s novel The Thirty-Nine Steps. I wasn’t able to fully comment on the adaptation myself as I hadn’t seen it, but UPDATE!
The producers of The 39 Steps book/game, The Story Mechanics, sent me a free copy to play/read/navigate on Steam. I was super excited, and I haven’t finished with it just yet (my uni work schedule at the moment is kind of insane) so stay tuned for a proper review.
From what I’ve seen so far there are a lot of redeeming qualities to this medium of story, and I know you’re gonna be on the edge of your writerly seats to hear all the juicy bits.
